Sam and a longtime golfing buddy arrived at the Seminole Clubhouse the other day and decided that just once, they would play the ball where it lies on this round of golf. . . "No matter what !" Everything was fine till the 14th hole when Sam sliced his drive and it ended up on the cart path. As Sam reached down to pick up his ball to get relief, his friend said, "Wait a minute! We agreed that we would not improve our lies! Remember? No matter what!" Sam tried to explain that he was entitled to this relief, that it was in the rules of golf. But his buddy would not allow it. Throwing up his hands in disgust, Sam went to the cart and grabbed a club. As he stood near his ball, he took a few practice swings, each time scraping the club on the pavement and sending out showers of sparks. Finally, Sam took his shot. The club hit the path again, sparks went flying, but Sam's ball shot straight towards the green, landed and rolled to a stop - two inches from the cup. "Great shot!" his buddy exclaimed. "What the hell club did you use?" Sam gave him a sly, silly, little smile and said, "Your 7 iron !"

While ferrying workers back and forth from an offshore oil rig, the helicopter lost power and went down. Fortunately, it landed safely in the water. Struggling to get out, one man tore off his seat belt, inflated his life vest, and jerked open the exit door. "Don't jump!" the pilot yelled. "This thing is supposed to float!" As the man leapt from the helicopter into the water, he yelled back, "Yeah, and it's supposed to FLY too!"

Thanks to Martin for sending this picture taken by his son: Mogollon, New Mexico This old mining town is located in the western part of Gila Wilderness, and the town, some mountains, and other features were named for a Spanish administrator or explorer. (pronounced muggy on) There are a few residents, and more in summer when it is something of an artist's colony. Other buildings, like this one, just are.

The Hospital regulations where Betty last worked as a nurse, like most all others, require a wheelchair for patients being discharged. One day Betty found an elderly gentleman, already dressed and sitting on the bed with an overnight suit case besides him. The guy insisted he didn't need Betty's help to leave the hospital. But after Betty educated him about the hospital rules, and vehemently insisting she would take him down to the hospital exit, he reluctantly agreed to let her wheel him to the elevator. After they were downstairs and at the exit door, Betty asked if his wife or someone was meeting him and taking him home. "I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Helen Re: XP Administrator log-in Hi, Webby, I wonder if you can help me with this. I have Windows XP (home), and I have my computer set so I do not have to log on when I start up Windows. I tried to install a new version of Windows Media Player, and now the system is telling me I can only finalize the installation by shutting down and then re-starting and logging in as the administrator. At this point I am unable to view video clips or records files to CD, and I do not want to give up the convenience of not having to log on at start-up, as I am the only user of this computer. Can you tell me how to finalize the installation and still keep my automatic start-up? Thanks in advance!!
